Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 The mighty hills encircling
In splendor tow’r above,
So God His own shall e’er surround
With His unchanging love.

Rejoice, rejoice
In pow’r and might, In song and light;
Rejoice, rejoice
In mercies ev’ry morning new;
Rejoice, rejoice,
His love proclaim, O bless His name!
We praise Him for His wondrous works,
We yield Him homage true.

2 The skies in beauty bending,
Unclouded shine and fair,
So bends a Father, tender, kind,
With His unceasing care. [Refrain]

3 The world in vernal glory,
Shall own the Master’s sway,
So we would own our King of kings
And hail Him Lord for aye. [Refrain]
